August 27, 20151 The Lovell Chronicle I 11 BY DAVID PECK The Lovell Bulldogs will be pushing the enve- lope a bit as the 2015 cross country season gets under way. Coach Caleb Sand- ers said he wants his most- ly veteran team to push themselves harder as they train during the fall. "Most of our runners are returners," Sanders said. "They've been in the program, so they know what to expect. That in- creases the speed at which they can learn. "We have different goals in different seasons. This year I want to raise our pain tolerance, our discomfort. Sometimes I feel kids don't know their tolerance level. I hope to get some of that down in practice." Sanders said for a teenager a heart rate of 120 to 130 beats per min- ute is considered to be a light workout with the 140 to 160 range a medium ef- fort and above that more difficult. "I want to be able to get into a good racing heart rate," he said. "That's one of the indicators that you're working hard." BOYS TEAM The Bulldogs lost three runners to graduation in Andrew Mayes, Dylan Ohman and all-state run- ner AJ Dickson, who placed seventh at the state cross country meet with a time of 17:12.46. Dickson was a team leader for the Bull- dogs and will be missed, Sanders said. "It hurts to lose their experience," Sanders said of the seniors, "AJ especial- ly, because he was an all- state runner." But the Bulldogs have four runners returning with state experience in senior Jacob Newman and sophomores Brent Snyder, Kyle Wolvington and Ben Cornia. "Jacob is definite- ly our quickest, and with his track experience he has a good background in distance running," Sand- ers said. Newman ran 18:21.86, good for 26th at 3A State, but he ran in the 17s during the season, the coach said. "He's a 17-minute run- ner," Sanders said. "I hope he'll be an all-state runner this year." Back as a junior is Kyle Burton, who battled inju- ries during his junior year, Sanders said, and the three sophomores give the team a solid, if young, core. "Brent, Ben and Kyle all ran at State," Sand- ers said. "We need them to step it up more in practice and be leaders in front and extend themselves more. We've seen hints of that. Last year they were more reserved and kind of held back, it seemed like." Snyder ran 18:38.99 at State (35th), Wolving- ton 20:28.93 and Cornia 21:23.78. Moving up from the middle school team are freshmen Brenden Lund- berg, Hunter Steenbakkers and JR Dickson. Lundberg is in his fourth year with the program, Steenbakkers third year and Dickson sec- ond year. Leading the middle school team is eighth-grad- er James Caldwell. Also out are sixth-graders Kin- caid Dickson and Jacob Mangus. GIRLS TEAM Leading the Lovell girls is senior Jaclyn Caldwell, who placed 10th at 3A State with a time of 19:59.39, a good time for a 5-kilometer run, Sander said. "I'm looking forward to how she runs," the coach said, noting that Caldwell is a veteran who knows race strategy well. "She wants advice on how to run, but what she has in her gut is almost better," he said. "She does better out in the flow of the race. If she plans it and over-thinks it, it doesn't seem to produce the same results." Also back are senior Af- ton George, who has state experience, and Caitlyn Lundberg, who battled a leg injury last season. "Afton is looking the best in practice I've ever seen her look," Sanders said. Back out as a sopho- more after running well as an eighth-grader but missing last season is Jes- sica Caldwell, Sanders said, noting that both Ja- clyn and Jessica attended the Utah State Universi- ty cross country camp this summer. New to the program is junior Savannah Jolley. The lone freshman is Me- gan Cornia, who was strong for the middle school squad a year ago. "We're excited to have. Megan as a high school in runner," Sanders said. Leading the mid- dle school squad are eighth-graders Lauren Mitchell and Patti Sand- ers, who came on strong last year to beat runners who were beating them earlier in the season, the coach said. Also out are eighth-graders Adaline Dickson and Sariah Hen- dershot, seventh-graders Maddisun Steed, Brook- lyn Walker and Raeghan Wacker and sixth-grader Krystalyn Palmer. Sanders is again as- sisted by Bret George and volunteer Ben Snyder. The Bulldogs will open the season this Friday, Aug. 28, at the Cody Invi- tational. The middle school race begins at 4 p.m., high school at 4:30. Lovell will host a mid- dle school meet on Thurs- day, Sept. 3, at a time to be announced. Other meets will be held in Billings, Sheridan, Lovell (Foster Gulch, host- ed by Rocky Mountain High School), Worland, Ther- mopolis and Powell. The 3A West Regional will be Oct. 16 in Lander, followed by the state meet Oct. 24 in Sheridan.
